We break down the hottest trends among students, according to social media accounts. The trends are listed in no particular order. These were, by opinion, chosen as the most talked about topics on social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) most recently.
Netflix – It’s no surprise that many students tweeted about this. Libraries closed on recent snow days leaving you with no other option to watch movies on your comfortable couch or in your warm bed instead of renting a film from the shelf. In addition, Netflix sales have skyrocketed causing stores such as Blockbuster and Hollywood Video to slowly die out.
Starbucks – A trend seeming to pick up in upperclassmen: Starbucks has craved the taste buds of students quite a bit lately. Various Tweets describe the want teenagers have for this leading coffee store to start up a delivery department.
Hunting Season – The first day of deer hunting proved successful for many students, according to bloody pictures on social media. Coincidence that many students were out sick in the beginning of the month? Not really.

“The Voice” – This primetime NBC show was a familiar favorite among students. Many students voiced their opinions about the show on Twitter by using the hash tag #VoiceSave.

Chipotle – Now beginning to emerge as the top hang-out/eat-out spot for high schoolers, Chipotle’s menu offers spicy, tingling foods to the tongue that will ask customers to come back for seconds, thirds, and many more. What's so special about it though? Perhaps it is the architecture of the stores giving off a simple, futuristic style (one of multiple reasons).
